Children with PTSD Have Structural Differences in the Brain, Study
In their study, the researchers compared MRI of brain structure in 24 children suffering from PTSD and 23 healthy children. All children experienced the Sichuan earthquake in south central China in 2008. Children had significant differences in the network of neural connections in the brain.
Dr. Qiyong Gong, a lead author of the study from West China Hospital of Sichuan University, says: “The PTSD group had changes suggestive of decreased local and global network efficiency due to damage or disconnection between linked regions.”
